Pressestimmen

"Jane Austen, Game Theorist ... is more than the larky scholarly equivalent of 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.'... Mr. Chwe argues that Austen isn't merely fodder for game-theoretical analysis, but an unacknowledged founder of the discipline itself: a kind of Empire-waisted version of the mathematician and cold war thinker John von Neumann, ruthlessly breaking down the stratagems of 18th-century social warfare."--Jennifer Schuessler, New York Times "[A] convincing case for how mathematical models and fictional narratives can work towards reciprocal illustration."--Jonathan Sachs, Times Literary Supplement "This is insightful literary analysis at its most accessible and enjoyable."--Kate Hutchings, Huffington Post Books "Jane Austen, Game Theorist should join the list of strategic classics like The Art of War ... on the shelf of everybody who wants to be effective in life."--Diane Coyle, Enlightenment Economics "Chwe makes an argument for Austen as a founder of decision science in this 2013 book that boasts an impressive array of diagrams and hard-nosed textual analysis."--Evelyn Crowley, Vogue.com "This is such a fabulous book--carefully written, thoughtful and insightful ..."--Guardian.co.uk's Grrl Scientist blog "[B]lends two very different subjects--game theory and literature--delightfully."--Siddarth Singh, Mint "Well researched and with an excellent index, the book will appeal to Austen fans who can see her characters in another light ..."--Choice "When an intelligent, knowledgeable reader with a new distinctive viewpoint engages intensely with a great work of literature, the results are usually worthy of attention. There is much that is valuable in Chwe's book."--Ernest Davis, SIAM News "Chwe's volume is a valuable first step toward a more interdisciplinary and much more inclusive field of decision sciences."--Mary Flanagan, American Journal of Play "Chwe's book is already a success among academics with a taste for rational choice theory and among Austen fans. It is highly recommended for students of game theory who would like to place the theory within different contexts, as well as students of political economy who would like to understand the extent to which a unique context influences individual objectives in strategic thinking."--Aurelie Charles, Eastern Economic Journal

In this book, the author tries to prove that one of Jane Austen's principal aims in writing and publishing her novels was to provide an education in strategic thinking to young unmarried women. This claim may sound eccentric but Chwe presents an abundance of evidence (culled from the novels) to support his claim. His evidence even suggests that Jane Austen discovered several fundemental insights of 20th-century game theory in the early 19th century. Thus calling Jane Austen a game theorist seems justified.
Chwe's book is a readable, non-technical primer on basic game theory and a valuable addition to the literature on Austen's novels.

Fun book from social science perspective 14. April 2013
Von mcdickenson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book has strong and weak points, but the good outweighs the bad if you are interested in either Austen or game theory. The best part is the careful analysis: all of the author's points about Austen's "proto-game theory" or analysis of strategic thinking are supported by references to her texts. Another thing I liked was the set of references throughout to related work (e.g. on reference dependence, novels as models for social science).

There were two aspects of the book that I did not like. One is that, given the title, I did not expect so much introductory material on "folk game theory" in other literature (the musical Oklahoma!, African-American folk literature). This material certainly complements the main thrust of the book, but could have been published as a separate paper. The other drawback was that definitions of major terms--such as how Austen would define strategic thinking--are left until relatively late in the book.

These two drawbacks were personal preferences, and the book is still a worthwhile read. If you are an Austen fan you will be introduced to a new theme in her work. If you are a game theorist you may see you work in a new light. Recommended, but with the qualifications stated above.

Intriguing examination 19. Juni 2013
Von The Splendiferous T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Definitely an intriguing examination of Jane Austen's brilliant crafting of characters. I'm generally annoyed by analysts insisting that a long-dead author meant this or that, when no one knows for sure what an author may or may not have deliberately intended, but this book doesn't presume so far. It simple renames Austen's preference for "cleverness" as "game theory."

There is some technical discussion, but any liberal arts or social science readers can skim over that chapter and still understand the basics of the author's point. A great bridge between math lovers and English majors. Probably best for college-level readers, not mass-market.

The author also digresses into examples completely unrelated to Austen; while African-American folk tales and civil rights strategy are illustrative and fascinating, they seem completely out of place in a book that seem intended only for Austen lovers.

Overall, a thorough and enlightening read.

Insightful Literary Analysis with a Cognitive Psychology Twist 11. Mai 2013
Von Herbert Gintis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Michael Chwe is a smart and talented economist whose multidisciplinary predilections led him to the political science department at UCLA. I know and love Jane Austen, and was skeptical of the title of this book. Indeed, I think the title is somewhat tangential to the content of the book. There are no Nash equilibria, no common knowledge assumptions, no mixed strategy solutions---all the standard fare of game theory.

What Chwe has authoritatively explored is the complex back-and-forth psychological dynamics of making decisions based on psyching out what other people are thinking, and taking actions that can reverberate three or more times from one mind to another, in the search for achieving one's goals. I had not thought just how central this idea is to the Austen novels. Indeed, it may just be what makes Austen the fine novelist that she is.

Chwe is always interesting and insightful. You will not learn academic game theory from this book, but you can take what you learned back to your reading of the Austen novels, and see dimensions of human behavior you may have missed in previous readings.

Stories and strategy; Class and cluelessness 16. August 2013
Von prof carl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was attracted to this book because I am an economist who teaches and uses game theory, and I love fiction. The book made me appreciate that the careful analysis of strategic behavior was written long before formal game theory was introduced. I found the description of communicating strategic thinking through African American fables, like Flossie and the Fox to be especially interesting.
The book also demonstrates that Austen had a richer understanding of strategy than formal game theory. This is argued persuasively in the discussion of carelessness in Austen and in real life. The careful discussion of the sources of carelessness makes the concept important for the analysis of choice and behavior.
Anyone interested in better understanding human interaction, real or fictional, would find this book interesting and valuable.

New perspective. 30. Juni 2013
Von Barbara Knox-Shaw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Brilliant, amusing, and very fully substantiated. Here is criticism that really gets to grips with the novels themselves. A pleasure to read.
